Visual Histories

A transdisciplinary research student workshop

This workshop has been organised to bring together research students from across the university (and beyond) with an interest in various aspects of the visual and its histories. There will be a series of short papers, as a prelude to more informal discussions, including the possibility of future themed workshops.
